Backwards leaving, Barely beating
Stupid reasons, useless feelings
I wasn't that surprised(its always part of my)
Awkward attempts to stay gone

I remain unknown

Chorus:

Im bleeding where i bled
Im hiding where i hid
Im entertained in sicker things
And everybody said
Im burning out instead
The softer side of unbearable

Feel castrated, Complicated
Mind mistreated
I wasn't that prepared(i wasn't that aware)
Just wanted to disappear

I remain unknown

Chorus

Come Around, coming down
Giving a frown, to the sound
When I hit ground
I the way that I say
When I know that I don't give a fcuk
about it anyway
Stay awake, Feeling cold and tired

Resignation - life's forsaken
I should have thought ahead

And I remain unknown

Chorus

I'm sicker than I thought
I'm fighting what I fought
I'm right back where I started from
Backwards leaving, Barely beating

    General CommentIt's neat that some lyrics from this song showed up in "Perfect."

    Everyone above me has got it, I think. It's about Josh's drug addiction and/or eating disorder.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is about him getting into drugs, having an addiction.
    some of it is self explanitory

    General Commentit also could partly be about his insomnia..
    "Stay awake, Feeling cold and tired"
    About his drug addiction, his insomnia, and his bulimia.
    Thats my guess

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the correct lyrics are:

    "Feel misleaded, mind mistreated"

    "I hate the way that I say that you'll stay
    When I know that I don't give a fuck about it anyway"

    Definately about an addiction but I think it's emphasizing that it's something that he thought he was over and now it's coming back.

    "I'm sicker than I thought
    I'm fighting what I fought
    I'm right back where I started from"

    The thought he was almost better but it ended up he was still addicted. Now he has to start the treatment all over again.

    "Stay awake, Feeling cold and tired"

    Drug withdrawl symptoms, insomnia.
